I have noticed the parking brake engaging automatically at times when I shift to park. The odd thing is that this does not happen consistently, sometimes it happens on an incline and sometimes it does not and vice versa. I know the manual states that the parking brake may be auto engaged at times, but I have just not found a common denominator that would explain why it has engaged automatically under different circumstances, but more often than not it does not do so.

Has anyone else experienced this?

Mine is not consistent at all. Sometimes I'm on an incline and it don't engage. It's cool though because I love the fact that it auto disengage when I touch the gas. Helps prevent you from riding on the parking brake. I use to accidentally do it on my explorer. Funny though it won't disengage if you're not in a seat belt lol. Speaking of which I love the fact the seat belt bell shuts up after 1 min.

I second Sterling in that I too will have to try without the seatbelt, but I also don't recall it disengaging when hitting the gas, that would be convenient.

I just went and tried it in my driveway and it worked exactly how Dajuice05 described, including not disengaging with my seatbelt off. Thanks!

Yep, testing as proved to me that the parking brake will not disengage without the seat belt being put on and you will get a display informing you of this.

Secondly you can engage either the drive or reverse and the parking brake will disengage to allow you to move the car.

I also discovered that once the engine is running, placed in park without the parking brake engaged you can drive the vehicle for a short distance without the seat belt connected and hear no warning.
